A group of teenagers, taking a nocturnal hayride come across the grave of a man. Little did they know that this deceased man is a zombie. One by one, the actual living are falling victim and becoming zombies. Eventually there are zombies everywhere, and someone needs to stop them, but who?
I always wanted to see this film when I first heard about it in the 90's. Finally tracked down a copy on VHS and my brother and I watched it together. We were both psyched. After it was over we were a little let down. It wasn't as good as we hoped. Don't know why we thought it was going to be some masterpiece. Watching it again tonight I enjoyed it quite a bit more. It's cheesy and fun. It's gory and it's not boring. I was hard on it when I first saw it and now I enjoy it for what it is.
Even a zombie from Night of the Living Dead is trying to cash in on the success of that film...

I really shouldn't like this dumb ass film. Bill Hinzman, best known as the cemetery zombie from "Night of the Living Dead", wrote, produced, directed, edited and starred in this merciless rip-off of Romero's zombie films. He's clearly playing the same character, and even steals the ending of NOTLD. The film is ridiculous, packed with terrible acting, arbitrary nudity (all by people you have no desire to see nude) and no sense of continuity (one small pack of recurring zombies appear everywhere in this film). Yet it has it's shining moments and I had some real affection for it.
What a honking piece of shit. I love shitty movies, so I was actually enjoying this while laughing at the utter "What the fuck?!?"-ness of this. The script was apparently made up as shooting went along since about 3/4ths of the way through the film we suddenly jump locales and all but two of the original characters are dead. New characters are introduced, mainly through pointless full frontal nude scenes that fucking DEFINE gratuitous and then are summarily killed off. The acting was pure comedic gold as everyone seemed to be reciting something the learned mere moments before the camera started rolling. Toss in some repetitive synth "mood" music and you're all set. It's always cute to see 80s fashion,…
